Shayne Carter

WORD Christchurch

In Dead People I Have Known, the legendary New Zealand musician Shayne Carter tells the story of a life in music, taking us deep behind the scenes and songs of his riotous teenage bands Bored Games and the Doublehappys, his best-known bands Straitjacket Fits and Dimmer, and the Flying Nun Record label.

Carter appears live in conversation about the writing of the book – often poetic, often hilarious, always engaging – and the stories within, which feature guitars, women, family, friends and his other love – sport.  Not to be missed.
